Episode 36 - Implications of the Proposed Gainful Employment Rule

In this episode, Dr. Jason Altmire and Jason Delisle of the Urban Institute delve into the concerns and challenges surrounding the proposed gainful employment rule. Their discussion offers insights into the high school earnings test and the use of earnings as an accountability metric in higher education. Delisle's research findings reveal a considerable number of certificate programs at community colleges would fail the high school earnings threshold. Moreover, Delisle raises an important question about the government's role in subsidizing low-income credentials that hold significant value despite their lower income potential.
Delisle is a non-resident senior fellow for the Center on Education Data and Policy at the Urban Institute. He is known for his extensive research on topics such as student debt, college enrollment, and the for-profit sector of higher education.
